What a funeral home and cemetery won't tell you!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on January 1, 2015 at 5:05 PM

** IMPORTANT INFORMATION (please feel free to share)! **

Tragically, I've noticed that many of people have recently posted on Facebook about suffering the loss of a loved one (and my heart & prayers goes out to those families).  And just today, I learned some very helpful money saving information about funeral services that I didn't know before, and I want to share the information with you...

When you face a death in your family - and you will - before you EVER speak to a funeral home, or cemetery, speak first to a funeral negotiator.  The loss of a family member is tragic in and of itself so why compound your sorrow with the burden of debt?

For example:

Did you know you do not have to purchase a coffin from a funeral home?  You can acquire one online.  Walmart.com, of all places, is one of many sources to purchase a coffin.  Why pay $7,000 for something you can get the same thing for at $1,500, or less?  

Did you know you do not have to hold funeral services in a funeral home?  You can hold your loved ones services in a church at little or no cost.  

Did you know you do not have to pay to have your loved ones grave dug?  You and/or friends/family can dig his/her grave yourselves.  What an incredible act of love that is.  

I have a friend that has personally helped a family dig a loved one's grave, and used the services of a funeral negotiator.  His mother's funeral services were held in a church at no cost to his family.

To all of you whom have lost a loved one, my heart goes out to you and your families, and I sincerely hope this valuable information will ease some of the financial burden that often accompanies your loved one's final resting arrangements.
